As we celebrate 236 years of Independence from Great Britain and the rule of tyranny. We should remember and teach our children why we are free and why we are celebrating independence.
We Are A Moral Country Founded On Christianity
Our founders knew we were not a theocracy, but they placed value on a higher authority and morals. As John Adams said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
Our Declaration of Independence reaffirms this in the statement: "A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
John Adams, one of the founding fathers, wrote to his wife, Abigail:
"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

These freedoms were granted to us through our Creator,not our government. Our Declaration of Independence protects us from tyranny, while our Constitution limits the powers of the government... continue reading
